Capital Markets

An IPO is a critical milestone for most companies. It transforms businesses and changes the way they operate. We know this. It is not just any old deal and we treat it accordingly.

Our capital markets group forms a core part of our corporate team, advising AIM and Main Market clients on IPOs, secondary fundraisings, M&A, shareholder activism and corporate governance. 

We represent UK and overseas companies seeking to access the UK capital markets. We also advise companies who seek to admit securities on other European exchanges, such as the Channel Islands International Stock Exchange, and on dual-listings including on the Toronto Stock Exchange, Johannesburg Stock Exchange and Australian Stock Exchange.

We act for companies, nominated advisers, sponsors, brokers and investors. 

Our capital markets group, which comprises solicitors in our corporate, financial services regulation, employment, tax and dispute resolution teams, provides joined-up thinking and comprehensive advice to clients involved in the London markets.

Our clients appreciate our approach as nothing falls through the cracks, we can respond quickly and comprehensively, and our partners and lawyers become trusted business advisers no matter what the issue or transaction facing them.
